Hi there! We recently finished a web game with friends, here it is: https://robostorm.io Less than 7 MB, play in your browser Note: only playable on desktop platforms at the moment. Rules: You control a robot and belong to one of 4 teams (marked by nickname color). There are 4 teams and 5 capture points on the map, and the aim is to help your team gain control over most of these points, while shooting enemies. You will gain XP by killing enemies and capturing points, and you can spend it on buying useful upgrades. Damaged robots can be repaired in small repair cabins at the corners of the map. Controls: Use W, A, S, D keys to move your robot. Aim with mouse cursor. Shoot left and right weapons with left and right mouse buttons. Press Space to sprint. Press Shift to activate shield. Press B to open shop menu. Press Esc to change sound/fullscreen/quality settings. Made in 6 months (not full-time) on PlayCanvas with friends (me and 2 artists).It was my first experience with networking and multiplayer. One of the reasons I registered here, apart from sharing, is to ask a monetization advice. I'm not greedy, but right now I have to pay for servers, and if there would be a way to at least cover that expence, I'd be happy Things I know/tried: - I'm using Amazon AWS servers. They're expensive. Gonna check Linode (sounds good?). - Google Adsense doesn't like us. "Insufficient content" (not too much text - but there's no reason to have text!), and they don't like iframes. Many game portals iframe the game (can't do anything about it). - Tried some affiliate banners from admitad.com. 500 clicks, $0, because they mostly pay for registering in advertised games, not for clicks. - Tried ad4game. They gave me amazingly terrible ads. Like, bright pink, blinking, stuff like that Can't add those, too annoying. Do you guys have better suggestions? I've been told about licensing the game to game portals. Does it mean banning it from unlicensed sites? They actually earn money by embedding our game and adding their ads on top, and they don't pay us, and that's not great.. however they also bring traffic, and that's good.
I made a little HTML5 game. It's a randomly generated turn-based puzzle game about surviving the attack of killer robots. There's a randomly gneerated board where you'll see a man and some robots. You can move the man to any of the squares near him. Clicking on the man will dangerously teleport him to a random location. Teleporting may cause instant dead, so be careful with that. You can't attack the robots directly, but you can make the robots crash into each other. You win by making all the robots die. You lose if a robot gets to the square the man is in. Once you clean a level you move to a next level, where you'll fight one more robot than before. Eventually you will die. Note: Sometimes the game doesn't fully load the first time. Reloading the page usually works.
